Forum: GratefulDead Subject: One more Friday night..

Spent digging through the archives..

The kids are asleep, wife is doing her thing, as for me the volume gets a bit louder with each bottle deposited in the recycle bin..

Jumped from '69 to '77, so many different styles, flavors, and sets to choose from. Thanks to the archive these are not bad days, not bad at all.

Yes of course I miss being there, pushing 20 years now, but, well, I guess it's like the book I read my daughter tonight:

"What are you doing?", said City Dog to Country Frog.

"Waiting for a friend," said Country Frog. "But you'll do."

I think we should do more to try to capture the "modern day archive-head experience!" Listening to tapes we remember that it was all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago, and people share a lot of show memories, but we are all still living out our stories, a lot of middle-aged people in a listening community where we all sit around pulling bits off the net to share the music instead of hearing it as it was made. Perhaps it doesn't make for the same kind of anecdotes as trying to see how many hippies could fit into a hotel room but it is still nice to think about how all those countless pairs of eyes staring up at the stage years ago are now staring at their computer screens. "Wake up to find out that you are the I/O of the network..."
